Several permanent-magnet excited rotor types for a brushless DC motor can be designed regarding their applicability based on the arrangement of the permanent magnets; since the rotor configurations strongly influence the performance of permanent magnet electrical machines. Surface mounted, radially magnetized permanent magnet design is mostly preferred due to its ease of construction and ...

Magnetic Liquids for Lab-on-a-chip and Rapid Diagnostics Applications

H. Köser
Yale University

In this presentation we outline our recent work on Magnetic Liquids, and the great number of application areas these are used. Ferrofluids are nanometer sized magnetic particles, covered by a surfactant, suspended in a carrier medium compatible with the surfactant material. Ferrofluids are applicable to a great and ever increasing number of application areas, such as: • Liquid Seals and ...

A parametric simulator for a dezincification process industrial device analysis has been developed. The device is built upon a COMSOL Multiphysics magneto-thermo-hydraulic coupled model in a cylindrical coordinate system.We study effects of electromagnetic forces on a cast iron load and consequently on Zn gas bubbles trajectories included in the metal.Trajectories are obtained according to mass ...

Interactions of Magnetic Particles in a Rotational Magnetic Field

A. Weddemann, A. Auge, F. Wittbracht, S. Herth, A. Hütten
Bielefeld University, Germany

Particle-particle interactions are usually neglected when considering the behaviour of magnetic particle's so called magnetic beads in e.g. a microfluidic device. However, if the particle density exceeds a critical limit, this assumption might not lead to proper results anymore. In this paper the particle-particle interaction of magnetic beads in an external magnetic field will be discussed. It ...

Design and Simulation of an Electromagnetic Valve Actuator Using COMSOL Multiphysics

R. Wislati , H. Haase
Leibniz Universität Hannover, Germany

In this paper an electromagnetic solenoid actuator (EMVA) consisting of an upper and lower electromagnet, a linear moving armature and two preloaded springs is considered as a potential approach in Variable Valve Actuation (VVA) Systems for Internal Combustion Engines. In opposition to common approaches the underlying EMVA make use of a permanent magnet in the upper electromagnet. The analysis of ...

Modeling of High Temperature Superconducting Tapes, Arrays and AC Cables Using COMSOL

O. Chevtchenko
Technical University of Delft, The Netherlands

In this paper we present a set of numerical models created with COMSOL Multiphysics. The set includes quantitative models of a superconducting tape operated at 77 Kelvin, carrying a transport current and exposed to external magnetic field; an array of such tapes and a triaxial high temperature superconducting cable. Similar models were created in the past. However, an advantage of our approach is ...

Designing Magnetic Coils from the Inside Out

C. Crawford, and D. Wagner
University of Kentucky
Lexington, KY

Traditionally the design cycle for magnetic fields involves guessing at a reasonable conductor and magnetic material configuration, using finite element analysis (FEA) software to calculate the resulting field, modifying the configuration, and iterating to produce the desired results. We take the opposite approach of specifying the required magnetic field, imposing it as a boundary condition on ...

Electro-Stimulating Implants for Bone Regeneration: Parameter Analysis on Design and Implant Position

A common clinical treatment is the application of alternating electromagnetic fields using a screw implant to the weak bone tissue within the femoral head, which speed up the bone regeneration in case of avascular necrosis of the femoral head . In our present work the bipolar induction screw system as the depicted ASNIS S-Series screw with integrated coil and electrodes were investigated. ...
